“I was disappointed to see that a supporter of Democrat incumbent Jennifer Benson submitted a letter to the editor repeating the slanderous attack my opponent made against me and my employer at a recent debate in Lunenburg. Even after it was pointed out that Ms. Benson simply had her facts wrong the slander continues.

Voters are fed up with these unfair political attacks that twist or even fabricate the facts. This deliberate slanderous attack is a desperate attempt by my opponent to take the focus off her voting record and flip-flops on taxes and casinos.

The first debate between Democrat incumbent Jennifer Benson and Republican challenger Kurt Hayes in the battle for the 37th Middlesex district State Representative seat took place at Lunenburg Town Hall Monday evening. The spirited debate included an opportunity for each candidate to ask their opponent two questions. Benson used one of her questions to mount a misleading and slanderous attack on Hayes and IBM, the company for which Hayes has worked for 20 years.

Benson asked, “Kurt, in 2008 IBM was required to refund to the Commonwealth $13M for selling the state software products it didn’t need in violation of state bidding rules. You currently work in software sales for IBM and have stated that you intend to remain with the company even if you win a seat in the legislature. How will the people of your district know if you are representing their interest or the interest of your primary employer, a company found to have violated state bidding rules?”
